    Answered . This is not the way it works. Child support is required and it is based on the incomes of both parents. In addition to child support, the father is required to contribute towards health insurance, medical expenses and day care if there is a day care expense. In some cases, a judge may allow payment of expenses instead of child support, but this is extremely rare.
    You should speak to an attorney about having court ordered child support established and enforced.
